Ok, so I have been sick all week!!!! I live in Buffalo,NY and Buff can have some crazy weather, and as we all know, changing weather and temps will just about "kill" us! So a little about me, am 38yrs old, I have a 15(turning 16 via 30) ha! Anyhoo, I have been chronically symptamatic since 1999, however,I remember as far back as 15yrs old experiancing Lupus flares and symptoms. No one wanted to believe me, they thought I was looking for atten, but I was really sick. I also have Fibromyalgia, and I diagenosed in 2004, I had exstream pain for 2wks str8t, nothing was working, I had narcotics, over the counter, I ended up in the ER 3 days in a row, man I will never forget when that happened,Dec 9th-23rd,2003!!!!!! Crazy thing was, all the pain symptoms just stoped one day, one minute I was in pain, then after I took my pain meds, the pain just stoped(the extreme pain), I still had the everyday pain, but during this timeframe, the pain was worse.

I don't want to write you guys a book, ha, but I am so happy I found this website, now I can talk to people who understand me, understand that when I say "my skin feels like its on fire", you will know what that is! Am on here looking for support and also for honesty! and most of all people being themselves. I look forward to talking with you guys.
Oh BTW, am a member of Healthdiaries.com, I was posting often, but have not been on for years! Check it out! my real name is Keeon Williams use that to Google, you'll be able to just go to my old pgs.
